Why Choose Our Gold Coast Solar Panels

If you're new to solar power systems, it might be worth highlighting just some of the fantastic benefits homeowners gain when they go green.

Low Energy Costs:

First things first–if you’re looking to lower your ongoing energy costs, installing solar power systems is one of the best ways to do it. A recent 2023 report found that the average Queensland household with solar panels saved over $480 per power bill–how’s that for savings!

Your Solar Power System is Eco-friendly:

If you’ve been looking for more eco-friendly ways to support the environment from the comfort of your own home, solar systems are one of the best ways to do it. Taking away the residential homeowner’s reliance on non-renewable sources of energy, the right solar power system can lower or eliminate air pollution or greenhouse gases that come from operating less environmentally-friendly energy sources from the home.

Increase the Value of Your Home:

Even if you’re not planning to move any time soon, a Gold Coast solar panels project is a fantastic way to increase the value (and resale interest) of your home. With more would-be buyers looking for eco-friendly solutions in their potential-buy list, and many buyers looking for major home renovation projects that have been completed before they move in, installing solar panels before you go-to-market will likely increase your residential property value and potential customer base.

Gold Coast Solar Installation Process

step 1

Request a Free Quote

The first step in installing solar energy on the Gold Coast is deciding if it's a good fit for you, and one of the biggest deciding factors is typically the cost. You can speed up your decision-making process by requesting a free site visit and estimate in order to evaluate the advantages of going solar more thoroughly. The estimate also includes a description of the equipment that will be installed and its location on your commercial building and/or commercial property. Send us a message through our contact form or give us a call at 1300 639 363 to request a free site visit and quote.

step 2

Schedule A Site Visit

Each home or business has unique energy requirements, and different buildings require different equipment and installation. Therefore, we despatch an experienced member of our team to create a customised estimate based on your specific needs and the layout of your building. Additionally, you will be able to discuss various products, such as solar water pumps and solar storage batteries.

step 3

Lock In Your Savings

After the site visit, we will send you an email with a quote that details your up-front costs, monthly payments, and projected energy savings based on solar energy absorption estimates. You will be able to easily compare short and long-term savings to costs. Our format makes it simple to compare our estimate to other competitors. In addition to the numbers, be sure to compare work quality and warranties, and keep in mind that Essential Energy Solutions can match the prices of our competitors to ensure that you receive the highest quality work at the most affordable price.

After deciding that solar power will indeed save you money while increasing the value of your home, you can request changes or sign the quote and return it to us to lock in your savings. Then, we will provide you with the necessary documentation to proceed to the solar installation phase.

Solar Power Gold Coast FAQs

How much does solar cost on the Gold Coast?

The average cost for solar panel installation on the Gold Coast depends on the system itself. We tailor a solar panel system to best offset your usage and give you excellent return on investment.

A few factors should be considered when you’re planning to adopt and install solar panels for your Gold Coast home or business for the first time–and most of these will influence the final project cost. Among these few factors, there is:

The Solar Companies Assessment:

A qualified technician will need to review your home and suggest possible solutions available for your house, building, or utility needs. (Fortunately, our Gold Coast solar installers offer free surveys and assessments and can provide a consultation to discuss your options for free!)

Choosing Your Equipment:

Next up will be the equipment you choose and from which supplier.

Solar Systems Installation:

Getting your new power system installed and inspected for safety, efficiency, and effectiveness is the next step.

Ongoing Maintenance:

Ongoing maintenance and servicing of your solar panel system will require working with a qualified technician who understands solar system power. Regular maintenance and cleaning should also be factored into your budget.

All in, the price range for solar installation and maintaining a new solar power system in a Queensland home depends on the following:

  • Assessment:
    $0 – free offer from Essential Energy Solutions
  • Equipment and Installation:
    Prices can vary depending on the system needed to meet you usage needs
  • Ongoing maintenance and servicing:
    (maintenance and cleaning included with all Essential Energy Solutions solar panels for the first 12-months)

We’re always working to bring the most affordable solar panels to the market.

What is the current solar rebate in QLD?

Through the Federal Government program, applicants can receive a solar rebate until 2030–however, the amount you can claim on the rebate lowers each year until that time. All this is to say–the earlier you install your solar power system and apply for your rebate, the better!

As for state-based programs if one commences we will inform all our customers.

What happens to solar power when batteries are full?

This is a higher-level technical conversation to have with one of our consultants, but in short--when solar power batteries are fully charged, any additional (or excess energy) is sent back to the national grid.

Households that rely on solar energy only use electricity sourced from the grid when their batteries are completely empty. The higher your battery's capacity, the more solar energy it can store.

Can a house run on solar power alone?

In short–no. For a house to run fully off of solar energy their solar batteries need to have some charge in them. If and/or when the batteries are fully empty, the house (or other connected source) will source their electricity needs from your mainstream energy provider. If your batteries have some charge left in them, your home (or otherwise) will draw its energy from these.

There are a few factors that need to be considered before installing a solar power system that will determine the viability of your home running on entirely solar energy including your location, the size of your roof, and your household electricity needs. Among the key factors we review during our initial assessment, we consider:

  • Roof Size:
    Roof size, layout, and angle
  • Property Facing Direction
    Direction of the sun-to-property (roof)
  • Your household power bills and panel budget
    Budget for the solar power projects
  • Additional Household Needs and Equipment
    Household electricity needs including generators, lifesaving equipment
  • Availability of sunlight
    Fortunately–this last factor is more often than not a resounding ‘YES!’ for Queensland and Gold Coast homes. With Australia ranking among the top countries worldwide with the highest number of hours of sunlight on Earth, having enough access to the light needed to power your panels isn’t usually a problem.
